Ravn Studio releases new game about Emil in Lönneberga
A completely new game about Emil in Lönneberga is now available on the App Store and Google Play! The Emil character celebrated his 60th Anniversary in 2023, and in celebration, Ravn Studio has developed the first game app based on Astrid Lindgren's beloved stories, featuring Björn Berg's delightful illustrations.
The app is a pleasant game for the youngest children (4+) with lots of good Emil vibes. There's plenty of fun to be had around Katthult farm in Småland with Emil and his little sister Ida. When Emil plays a prank, you can hear his father Anton's familiar "Eeeeeeemiiil!" all over Lönneberga. Then it's time to run to the carpenter's shed as fast as possible. Players can also go fishing with Emil and his good friend, farmhand Alfred, take a horseback ride on Lukas, catch chickens, carve wooden figures, or do some of Emil's well-known pranks—such as hoisting his little sister Ida up the flagpole, lighting the mayor's birthday fireworks, or getting the pig to jump. In several mini-games, you can compete against a friend.
The game is tailored for the youngest players with voiceovers in Norwegian, Swedish, and Sami. The game features original music by Georg Riedel.
"We are delighted that Emil can now be encountered on an entirely new platform. His world on Katthult farm in Lönneberga has become an entertaining game app filled with mischief that we hope many will appreciate!"
Johan Palmberg, Content Manager at The Astrid Lindgren Company and Astrid Lindgren's great-grandchild.
The Astrid Lindgren Company, the rights company that manages Astrid Lindgren's legacy, wanted a video game based on the well-known and beloved stories. The motto for the 60th anniversary campaign is "Mischief is good!" because Emil has his own creative way of solving challenges, and there are never malicious intentions behind his pranks. As Emil himself says: "Mischief is not something you plan; it just happens."
Drammen-based Ravn Studio has previously developed the game about Pippi Longstocking for Nintendo DS and 3DS. The game about Emil in Lönneberga is developed for mobiles and tablets (iOS/Android) in collaboration with Rockpocket Games in Tønsberg.
"It has been a true delight to dive into all the wonderful stories about Emil in Lönneberga and to give new generations of children the opportunity to get to know—and play with—Astrid Lindgren's fantastic universe on a platform they are familiar with."
